Todd Owyoung Interview with Ride The Lighting

My friends and UK photographers Danny North and Ashley Bird just posted an interview with me on their music blog, Ride The Lighting. They asked about photo contracts, how I got my start, the importance of social networking as a photographer and more. 

You can read the full interview over on their site, as well as some other great interviews (including Ride The Lighting’s own Danny North) and a selection of great rock photography from Danny and Ash’s archives.

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

D800_24_70_front-squareNikon D800:
I use two of the Nikon D800 for the majority of my work. High resolution, excellent high ISO in a robust but still compact body.
nikon-24-70mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 24-70mm f/2.8:
For most gigs, the 24-70mm is my go-to lens. Exceptional image quality at wide apertures and super-functional range.
Nikon-70-200-squareNikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR:
A perfect pair to the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, I can basically shoot any job with the midrange and this lens. Superb image quality.
nikon-14-24mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 14-24mm f/2.8:
Ultra-wide perspective, ridiculously sharp even wide open at f/2.8. I love using this lens up-close and personal, where it excels.
